Place 49 – Day 183: Auckland – Grocery Shopping, Cleaning & Light bulb Hunting!

We woke up at 11:30 today and Kim made a similar breakfast to yesterday.

We ate our breakfast and then we cleaned the apartment. We vacuumed the whole place, cleaned the kitchen and cleaned the bathroom, mostly the shower!

Once we did that, we did the normal Sunday run to the supermarket. We also went to the Warehouse to buy a extension cable and a light bulb for our lamp. Before we left, we took a photo of the lamp so we were pretty sure what we needed to get.

Once we got that, we did the weekly shop and then grabbed a coffee. Kim had an iced caramel Mocha and Curtis had a Cappuccino. We also got Kim a peppermint slice and Nicola a long black.

We got home and tried the light bulb but it wasn’t the right one still! For what Curtis is doing tomorrow he needs some work gloves so we headed to Mitre 10 to get that and try and find the right light bulb… We needed an ‘e14’ bulb, apparently.

When we got to the shop, we asked a worker there which light bulb we need and it seemed correct so we bought that, as well as some nice work gloves for Curtis.

We got home and, of course, the bulbs don’t fit! We need to figure out what we’re doing wrong!

Kim watched TV with Nicola and then we started dinner. We had mint lamb kebabs. They were outstanding!

We finished the evening with games, whiskey and ‘the bridge’.

Curtis is up at 04:00(ish) tomorrow…but it should be fun!

This time last year!
